Childhood Obesity Rates Falling!
During the first decade of the 21st century, childhood obesity rates among children in lower income families in the United States have decreased (14.94% in 2010 vs. 15.21% in 2003).

I found this data to be quite shocking. I know the change isn't dramatic and I can't really make sense of it other than maybe programs like the NFL's Play 60 are starting to help children live a more active lifestyle than in the previous decade.
With the rates of Cancer, Heart Disease and Diabetes on the rise perhaps this is a sign that the future generation will be able to reverse that trend!
